Mixpantli: Contemporary Echoes

(Los Angeles—September 16, 2021) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Mixpantli: Contemporary Echoes, an exhibition that showcases the lasting impact of Indigenous creative resilience and connects the vibrant artistic traditions of the past and the present, of Los Angeles and Mexico. The exhibition features the works of contemporary artists and mapmakers who draw on Indigenous cartographic and artistic histories to challenge dominant narratives about place and belonging. Mixpantli: Contemporary Echoes is a companion to Mixpantli: Space, Time, and The Indigenous Origins of Mexico (December 12, 2021–May 1, 2022), a show that marks the 500th anniversary of the fall of the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan (modern-day Mexico City), and centers on the creative resilience of Indigenous artists, mapmakers, and storytellers who forged new futures and made their world anew through artistic practice.
